This Gyro RC Quadcopter with Camera has some power behind it and it took us a while to try to get used to operating it. We haven’t exactly mastered it but, given time, we will. We aren’t experienced at flying quadcopters, the closest we have got are those little RC helicopters that my 10 year old received as a gift one year. So, keep this in mind while reading our review please. Recommended age is 14 years old and up.

First things first, I noticed while putting the protecting frames up for the blades that they weren’t wide enough. The blades hit the frames which in turn makes the quadcopter very noisy while on. After operating, the blades cause a small nick on the rails. I do not recommend taking them off though since they do protect the blades, as well as you and anything else around the quad while it is on. Trust me, those first couple of test flights will have this quad all over the place!
Charging the battery for the quad did not take long at all. It is nestled underneath the quad and is easy to remove, charge, and replace. You could keep one as backup or you could keep both charged and just switch them out when needed.
Make sure you have a large open area to fly the quadcopter. I originally tested it in my bedroom and it was all over the place. Open air will give you the space that you need to get used to the controls. We have a lot of tall trees around our home and we have a hard time getting the quad to go higher than our heads. The controls are very difficult to get used to.
We had a hard time figuring out how to use the camera so I can’t comment on that as of now. I did see other reviews mention that it is decent quality but do not expect HD. (This is their opinion, not ours.)
Overall, it is a decent quadcopter. The Gyro RC Quadcopter with Camera is available on Amazon.
